First Snow of the Season Brings Light Accumulation to Alexandria

Update at 10:30 p.m. — Alexandria public schools will be opening on a two hour delay Wednesday amid concerns about slick spots forming overnight as temperatures dip below freezing.

Earlier: The flakes are still falling, but the first significant snowfall of the season is starting to wrap up in Alexandria.

The city did not see major accumulation, but with just under an inch of wet snow it was enough to whiten the ground, coat tree branches and add a layer of slush to some local roads.

Alexandria City Public Schools and the federal government dismissed early this afternoon in anticipation of the snow and it was probably a good decision, with heavy traffic reported on I-395 and other major commuting routes.

The snow also prompted libraries and some city facilities to close at 2 p.m., while recycling and Christmas tree collection were suspended for the day — set to resume tomorrow, with some delays possible.

Alexandria’s Department of Transportation and Environmental Services described the snow as minor, but encouraged locals to keep their cars parked while snow crews worked to clear the streets.
